Just last week when the weather was sunny and breezy and beautiful, it was tempting to believe that spring, or even summer, was here to stay. But it seems that Mother Nature has bamboozled us all. Though this drastic shift to cold weather and snow can be downright depressing, at least we have sunny tunes to distract our minds with relaxing waves and warm breezes.

Enter Philly indie-pop four piece, Pilkington‘s song, “Soft Flesh.” Blending video game sound bites with breezy guitar riffs, Pilkington’s catchy pop jam removes listeners from the cold and transports them to the beach for a carefree party in the sun. Continue reading →

If you haven’t already fallen for those falsettos, this video will do the trick. Continue reading →
